      How about the presumption that the American public even gives a fuck?

      I've been surprised at how many people have thought all along that the
      "scandal" is actually a diversionary tactic. Hey, and now Clinton
      (with the help of Blair, et al) is killing people to create a
      diversion from the diversion!

      Crude, but totally accurate for me as well.

      And now, in a lame attempt to get music in here somehow, I'll relate
      this: I remember being at a protest against the Gulf War, and when
      some cheesy pseudo-folk singer got up with an acoustic guitar to sing
      some "deeply moving anti-war song," my friend turned to me and said,
      "Why does our side always have the shitty music?"

      best to all
